According to 700 Club host Pat Robertson, all you need is faith to heal you and your life, body, mind, and spirit. That’s rich, coming from a man who has gotten filthy rich off the backs of his poor, gullible followers.
Even more interesting is the fact that Robertson, despite these claims, certainly takes advantage of modern medicine when he needs it. He can’t tell anyone why that is a necessity either; after all, you just need faith and all your problems will go away. A viewer called into the show and challenged Robertson on this notion, and he had a hilariously tough time.
“Why have you undergone surgeries if your faith would be enough?” asked the viewer, prompting Robertson to struggle to provide a coherent answer.
“I don’t think that religion, faith and medicine are necessarily enemies,” he said, arguing that sometimes the answer to prayer is found in a doctor’s office.
“I don’t know what else to say,” Robertson finally admitted. “If you have enough faith … maybe I don’t have enough, but I have enough for other people.”
“…I have enough for other people.” That translates to, “send me more money.”
